Everyone already knows that I went out and bought a 1995 Eclipse GST for 300 bucks. And it needs some work. So in this thread I will update everyone on my progress. Here are a few pictures, the first thing I did was put my leather interior inside of the car. Here are some pictures of when I was looking at it, and some with the new interior.

My To Do List:
New T25 turbo

Lol!! O well, it gets me from point A to point B. Anyways here are a few new pictures, with me tearing the interior apart and cleaning it. I didnt get to steam clean the carpet, cuz it started to rain. But it does look alot better.

Ok got some updates, I got the rest of the leather interior for the car BUT the driver door panel. I got the passanger side panel, and the back seats. I also got a drivers side door in the color red. The tint on the new window is a little lighter. But I will just replace the glass. Here are some pictures. Also the guy I got the seats and stuff from, has a stock 7bolt with the turbo, and he said he would sell me the turbo if I could get the bolts off. Well there FROZE. I CANT get them. So thats out of the picture.

You should dye the leather seats black after you clean em up like I did mine...

I thought about that, but I want to keep them gray. I looked at your black interior and its just a little to black for me.

When I was working on the car yesterday, opening and closing the door testing the lock and alignment, I noticed the gauge cluster said "Security" or sumtin. I didnt pay no mind to it, till I went to unlock it from the outside and opened the door. All of a sudden an Alarm went off I had to rush to the front of the car and unhook the battery. I then later followed it to the alarm horn, unhooked that. But when I get out of the car and lock it, then go to unlock it and open the door the headlights flash, aka the alarm is going off. I looked EVERYWHERE and I couldnt find the fuse for the alarm. Does anyone no where it is? The car is a 1995 Eclipse GST lol, I didnt think this yr had an alarm.

There is a sensor in the door that when you manually unlock a door it disables the alarm. You need to pull that sensor out of your old door and stick it in the new one if it doesn't have it. That'll solve that problem for ya... If ya don't wanna do it that way, then the fuse is under the hood in front of the battery...

Is it in the fuse box? Because I looked and couldnt find anything. And with the door the wire was broken off the lock. Is that why it keeps going off?

Yes and yes. I had a problem where my hood button mount broke and the alarm kept going off at random times because of it and I had to pull the fuse until I fixed it... Now its broke again and I need to remember to fix it before I put it all back together again...

Would you be able to tell me which fuse it is? Because NONE are marked alarm.

I know its not marked alarm... It's listed as something else I think... I'm gonna go look here in a little bit for ya.

**EDIT**
I went out and looked and I can't seem it find which one it was... I can't remember which one I pulled... Looks like you may have to go and fix it the right way this time in the door. lol

*UPDATE*

For some STRANGE reason the alarm on the car just stop working. I never did find the relay to unplug it. All I did was remove the beeper from under the dash (the beeper that lets you remember when you left your keys in the car or your lights on) the next day I went to unlock it and open the door and the lights didnt blink. I tryed over and over, and still nothing. So Im stumped on that.

But heres the GREAT!!!!!! news I did a car fax report on the car, and the title came back clear. It had a loan on it over 5 yrs ago, and MOST if not ALL banks ONLY give 2 year loans 3 at the longest. I had a loan for one of my cars at 4,500 and it was a 2 yr loan. So Im hoping its done. Everything on the car is clean, no records its not stolen (which is the BIGGEST thing I was worryed about). So when I get payed Im filing for a lost title, and the even bigger BEST part with that is, the car is from another state. Which means.......They DONT have to be there to sign it at the notary. Just sign the front and back, since its an out of state sale. So I think everyone kinda gets what Im getting at. ;) But Im HAPPY!!!! So ya thats the update.

O I also found a stock 2nd gen turbo & manifold for 75 bucks. All I got to do is take it off the motor. I should be going over to get the turbo tomorrow after work, so more pictures will be up then.

I just now even noticed that this thread is here, lol, so I'll comment now.

-Now I know where David B got his carbon hood.
-That old school civic is do-do. That car would be fine for a DD if it wasnt all riced up. I could not rock that.
-The GST looks cool. Should be fun.
-I don't see why you put the leather seats in it....they look alot more worn than the stock cloth seats.
-Also in your plan list it said to replace the mirrors with black ones....why would you want to replace the color keyed mirrors for black ones...that would make it look cheap IMO.

Good luck on it, though

Ya its been gone for some time now. lol, and the reason I wanted to replace the mirrors with black ones, is due to I wanted to get a stock black hood, and black mirrors. I like how the black on red looks.
